July Flies From the Vise

Recommended Posts

Well you are going to get your rain !  I’m glad for it !   When we have a dry summer in Massachusetts it’s tough on

the wildlife and fish.  Jenning’s was an interesting man. Very proper.  I think he was a little miffed at the attention Art Flick

gained after his Streamside guide was published.  Flick was a nice guy.

A Tasmanian hopper found here; changed out the foam cylinder body for something more durable. It would have been appropriate to tie this in a hotel room.

hook - WFC Model 28 #10
thread - Uni 6/0 camel  
core - 20lb mono
body - 1mm foam bright green 
legs - golden pheasant tippet
wing - Krystal Flash pearl
head/collar - pronghorn
